High Intensity Interval Training

The perfect session if time is short is a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) session and better, it’s great for runners looking to improve their endurance.

In 30 minutes or less you can use it to become a better runner.

So, what are you waiting for?

Basically, when we do a HIIT session we are working so hard that we can’t get enough oxygen to our muscles to meet their demands for the aerobic energy system. When this happens, the body is still able to use glucose for energy, but it does so anaerobically, in other words without oxygen. The waste product in this case is lactic acid. When lactic acid builds up in our muscles, we experience a burning sensation and we rapidly tire so we can’t carry on exercising at high intensity.

Your body needs time to recover and adapt after a hard workout. Two HIIT workouts a week is enough.
